ZTE Axon now available for purchase from multiple retailers
ZTE is right on time for the Axon’s August 1st expected release date. The phone has only been available for pre-order so far, but today it reaches a new stage as retailers across the internet begin offering it. You can now get yourself a brand new ZTE Axon straight from the manufacturer’s website, as well as Amazon, Newegg and eBay.
As expected, the phone costs $449.98, which is one hell of a price for what you will be getting from this unique smartphone. The ZTE Axon is very special in that it offers top-of-the-line specifications, but its price point undercuts all the big guys.
Packed inside the Axon you will find a 5.5-inch QHD display, a 2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP dual camera, an 8 MP front cam and a 3000 mAh battery. Those are specs worthy of awards, so don’t go thinking you will get anything less than a premium handset.
But the value doesn’t end there. ZTE has decided to give all Axon customers free accidental protection for 2 years. And if you happen to be an audiophile, the phone also supports HiFi audio support and comes packaged with a free set of JBL headphones. The phone really has it all, and only for a fraction of the price you would pay elsewhere.

We reviewed the ZTE Axon and gave it an 8.9/10 score. There were very few bad things to say about it. Our main gripes were the lack of storage options, no microSD support and the dual cameras (which still seem a bit gimmicky). You should be fine if you can live with 32 GB of internal storage, though!
Are any of you grabbing a ZTE Axon?
